i feel like the patreon/substackification of everything forces people to commodify shit they might normally do for free just as a hobby or whatever, and you gotta sell it as Vital Work even if it's the equivalent of an npr fundraiser tote bag. idk, just my impression, ymmv
@nev this! Or the assumption that you need to waste time generating perks in order to get donations.
@mattbk yeah, i found thinking of/producing rewards as onerous as writing the main thing. i found that most people were happy to just donate with nothing special in return
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
